JCPS: Learn About Our Schools
Locations, School Capacity Data, and More
The Jersey City Public Schools (JCPS) has 28,000+ children and operates on a budget of $680+ million. A 2-volume study was commissioned by the BOE to help the BOE form a long-term facilities plan; Volume I was released in July 2013 and Volume II was released in 2014. This Jersey Journal article provides helpful background / context for Part II of the study. A series of highlights from each study are provided (click this link). You can learn more at the Jersey City Board of Education website & Facebook Page.

Crossing Guards - Where are they at your school?
Jersey City has a street safety page on its website listing intersections with public school crossing guards. I'm part of a parents team within Jersey City Together and we wanted to know how accurate the city's listing was, so we mapped it. Now we're sharing it, and we want to ask parents: does this map represent the true crossing guard locations at your school? Please give us feedback below.
